    I went around the block to drive down this arch of 'Kanzan' on 31st, Collingwood to Blenheim.

    Came across this beautiful street of 'Kanzan' on Deering Island Pl, east of Carrington St. Both sides, beautiful setting.

    At 3355 Deering Island Place, there are two very large 'Ama-no-gawa' on private property. Taller than the house. 'Kanzan' too.

    Also on the same street, at 3368 Deering Island Place is a good-looking 'Ukon' .
    Very attractive street.

    Two 'Shiro-fugen' at "The Old Farmhouse" at 6476 Blenheim Street.
    One is better than the other.

    I drove by there today. They are a little wispy, but look even taller than they appear in the photos. Very nice for the small corner they're in.

    On my way to UBC, I swung by 24th and Highbury to photograph the 'Shiro-fugen' trees.

    And I wanted to check in on the 'Shujaku' at 20th and Wallace. It's still there, but is way past its peak bloom - I would not have recognized it if I hadn't known the address. I thought it was such a late bloomer.

    So driving down Wallace, at 18th, there were 'Kanzan' off to the east, and another group attracting me to the west. I had the location slightly wrong when I posted this street in 2008, and I don't know which group I posted. Here is the view to the east and then west. These trees are the group to the west, from Crown to the west end of 18th.

    Between Wallace and Crown on 18th is a new-to-us 'Ama-no-gawa'.

    On the way to Deering Island, a flash of red caught my eye, most of the block of Holland Street south of Marine Drive.

    The north end of the block does have two established relatively young 'Akebono' trees, so I suppose I should not grouse about two very young 'Akebono' trees.

    I think this Prunus avium, though it appears to be on private property, is in line with the 'Kanzan' street trees and has been planted by the city. I hope it's a tasty cultivar.

    There is an interesting early cherry, low grafted, if grafted, maybe 'Whitcomb'? The third photo shows stuff growing at the base, which I thought looked like cherry rootstock, but not Prunus avium. Or maybe it's some totally unrelated thing.
